I'm painting my marine army as angels sanguine and i was wondering what colors i should do the highlights, on both the black and the red sides. Any ideas?
Sanguinis shall always be with us.
The Underempire will dominate all life.
For the black, a dark gray. Codex gray mixed with a bit of codex black should work. For the red, just a shade lighter than whatever you're using. I would just add white to they color you're using and use that.

Adding white can be dangerous as the highlight can tend toward pink.
I have found adding orange or yellow (choose the right toned one) to the base red a more satisfactory option that gives richer red highlights.

Another vote for yellow over white.
I agree about the white turning the red pink but I also hate the use of orange/yellow as it turns the red orange and it is a completely wrong colour for red to highlight in my opinion even the slightest highglight turns the red orange looking.
I like to use a deep red like scab red and highlight up to the lightest red in the range that way it stays red and gives it a nice tonal range instead of changing the tone altogether!
Here are examples found at Games Workshop
and here is an example with orange high lights
The eye is drawn to the lightest colour so in the latter it is drawn to the orange where as in the first it is drawn to the red
